‘Holidays are over’ Liberman warns Hamas heads
by Judah Ari Gross for TimesofIsrael.com, October 05, 2018
In a tweet, defense minister hints to leaders of Gaza terror group that Israel is ready to go to war over border violence.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Friday signaled to the heads of the Gaza-based Hamas terror group that Israel was prepared to go war, as the military geared up for another day of violence along the security fence surrounding the coastal enclave.
In a tweet, Liberman indicated that Israel had been holding back on a harsh response to the near-nightly riots on the border in order to prevent an all-out conflict during the period of the Jewish High Holidays, beginning with Rosh Hashanah on September 9 and ending with Simchat Torah on October 1.
“We’ve been through the High Holidays exactly as we planned, without a flare-up and by exacting a heavy price on the rioters along the Gaza border,” Liberman said, referring to the people killed and injured by IDF troops during the clashes.
“The holidays are over, and I say to the heads of Hamas: ‘Take that into account,’” the defense minister wrote.
U.S. Counterterrorism Strategy Puts New Focus on Iran and Proxies
by Reuters Staff for Reuters, October 05, 2018
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is giving greater priority to Iran and radical groups it backs in a new U.S. counterterrorism strategy document released on Thursday that further increases the pressure from Washington on Tehran.
The strategy, unveiled by National Security Adviser John Bolton, is the first issued since 2011 when the Obama administration’s view of counterterrorism was focused almost exclusively on the threat posed by al Qaeda after the death of its founder, Osama bin Laden.
The priority given to Iran this time around reflects President Donald Trump’s drive to contain Iran’s influence in the Middle East, curtail its ballistic missile program and backing of extremist groups and force it to the negotiating table by re-imposing U.S. sanctions.
Iran was cited only once – on the penultimate page – of the 2011 counterterrorism strategy as an “active” state sponsor of “terrorism.”
But the current document shows how the Trump administration has put Shi’ite Muslim Iran at the center of U.S. concerns, even as it keeps a focus on Sunni Muslim militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
Netanyahu blasts Abbas for ‘choking’ Gaza, warns Hamas of ‘very harsh response’
by AP and World Israel News Staff for WorldIsraelNews.com, October 05, 2018
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the embattled and ailing Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas for thwarting a series of internationally backed initiatives to rehabilitate the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip and refusing to accept “UN attempts to ease the plight” of the coastal enclave’s residents
Abbas instead has implemented a variety of crippling sanctions on Gaza to pressure Hamas to relinquish control of the strip, which the terror group has ruled since it ran Abbas’ Fatah faction out of Gaza in a bloody coup in 2007.
Jerusalem mayor boots UN agency from city
by World Israel News Staff for WorldIsraelNews.com, October 05, 2018
Barkat announced that the city is in the process of removing the Palestinians’ UN agency from the municipality for “creating a false sovereignty.”
“We are putting an end to the lie of the ‘Palestinian refugee problem’ and the attempts at creating a false sovereignty within a sovereignty,” says Mayor Nir Barkat.
The city of Jerusalem will evict the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) in light of the organization’s illegal activities and incitement of Palestinians against Israel, according to Mayor Nir Barkat on Thursday.
In a statement, Barkat said the new U.S. policy cutting $300 million to the controversial organization inspired the move, which will see unlicensed UNRWA-run schools, medical centers and sports facilities transferred to Israeli authorities.
Qatari foundation influences anti-Israel propaganda in U.S. schools, report says
by Jackson Richman for JNS.org, October 05, 2018
(October 5, 2018 / JNS) For seven years, the Qatari government has been spending $8 million to influence content in classrooms across the United States, including in the heavily Jewish-populated town of Newton, Mass., according to The Wall Street Journal.
“Newton public-school students are propagandized with materials that slander Israel and the Jewish people, and that falsify history to promote the Islamic religion in public schools,” according to a statement from the Boston-based organization Americans for Peace and Tolerance. “Just this past May, Newton North High School invited an anti-Semitic group to screen Palestinian propaganda films to its students. For this, NPS Superintendent David Fleishman earned a rebuke from the New England branch of the Anti-Defamation League and Boston’s Jewish Community Relations Council.”
As previously reported by JNS, the school district in the area is facing a lawsuit in Massachusetts Superior Court by a community group called Education Without Indoctrination (EWI), claiming numerous violations of the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law “stemming from the school committee’s handling of a burgeoning scandal over anti-Semitic lessons and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs as objective facts in the public school district’s history classes.”
Does Trump’s Tough Talk on Iran Have a Next Step?
by Armin Rosen for tabletmag.com, October 05, 2018
One of the value propositions of a Trump presidency is that the chief executive and his various helpers will say exactly what’s on their minds, regardless of how impolitic or contradictory or flat-out nonsensical their thoughts might be. So it was at United Against Nuclear Iran’s third-annual summit last week, where several of the country’s top foreign policy officials seemed to hold nothing back in discussing the Iranian threat.
“It’s very important that we restore deterrence,” said Brian Hook, the State Department’s special representative on Iran, adding, “We’re accumulating risk in the Middle East by not getting at Iran’s regional activities.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is a towering physical presence and a fast talker, said in his prepared remarks: “The Iranian regime robs its own people to pay for death and destruction abroad.” National Security Adviser John Bolton called the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), “the worst diplomatic debacle in American history” and an agreement “based on a flat-out lie, the illusion that the Iranian regime never desired a nuclear weapon.”
This is thrilling, or possibly terrifying stuff, especially on the sidelines of all the global agenda-setting that usually takes place during the week the United Nations General Assembly opens—and especially with Yossi Cohen, the oddly photogenic Mossad director, sitting in the front row. Cohen gave a bombshell-free off-the-record speech and otherwise appeared jarringly normal considering he’s the director of the Mossad as he posed for photos with whatever well-wishers summoned the nerve to approach him. The administration wanted to make it unmistakable that U.S. policy towards Iran had radically and irrevocably shifted, and that the U.S. would now be pursuing what Bolton called “a maximum pressure campaign.”
